"Ecofriendly" Microcar Designs

We couldn't resist reposting this -- because the illustrations of the microcars are so cool. This was posted on Ecofriend last summer, but we just saw the images this spring.

“Every day the green blogosphere is flooded with news and concepts about eco-friendly cars that promise to make our world a better place to live in. Dunno how many of them are actually going to see the daylight before doomsday! However that doesn’t stop us from bringing one more concept of a green mode of transport. Supervised by Prof. Dr. Stephan Rammler, Mendel Heit has conceived a Microcar targeting both young and grownups. The design is highlighted by large round door slides away to the back. Electrically powered, it is intended to be crafted from lightweight materials like aluminum and plastic. The interior is the controls are extremely reduced to make driving more user-friendly. Featuring LED headlamps and tail lamps, it also comes with camera mirror and O-LED technology in the windshield.
Undoubtedly meant for driving in the green future, a radio detection feature and card reader identifies the owner who just needs to press a button to start it and zoom off!”
